The harvests of chance sometimes favor archaeologists. In Hammar outside Kristianstad, the antiquarian Carin Bunte must look out to dig out a 3,500-year-old casket, which was threatened by a new stretch of road. crash when I found that the coffin was adjacent to a late medieval house, she says. Ghost fear has otherwise inevitably used to scare away older buildings from ancient graves. The casket in Hammer is known since the 1870s when it was examined by the great archaeologist Oscar Montelius. This one, however, did not cover the medieval house. The rock casket, now unveiled, is a huge family mausoleum of 4.5 m in length and has apparently been used as a tomb for half a millennium, as it has flint and bronze objects. the best thing is to find the remnants picture, move out to Judge about my supremely surprised hat after an 8 ore 5m
